The Tioga Point was founded in January 1895 as the Tioga Point Historical Society. The purpose of the museum as stated in the original incorporation was: "To collect and procure relics and records of local and general interest to the former and present inhabitants of Athens and vicinity; to collect and procure genealogical records of the first settlers and their descendants; and to provide proper care for, the preservation of the relics and records so collected by the maintenance of a museum where they are placed."  Over 120 years later, the Tioga Point Museum continues to live out that purpose.

  Flower - Walker Map Collection  

In 1941, the museum obtained a collection of over 800 maps from Nathaniel Flower Walker the son of Nathaniel Flower Walker and Great-Grandson of Zephon Flower - three generations of surveyors. Through this collection we view the earliest settlement of northeastern Pennsylvania and the growth and development of Bradford County, Athens, Sayre and Waverly.
